How many stitches are used for an adult circumcision?

Dr. Reed, Will I have less chance of scarring if my doctor uses less sutures?  Nick

Dear Nick.

Scarring is related to many factors.  One is when stitches are tied too tightly they tend to cut into the skin.  If stitches are not removed on or about the 12th to 14th post-op day and steril-strips put in, the reabsorption process in itself is inflammatory and that can cause scarring. If your doctor, cuts unnecessarily deeply and injures the vascular supply, this is not optimal for wound healing.  A circumcision is about removing skin and skin only. Less sutures generally means more puckers

Best to leave adult circumcisions to doctors who are very fussy about a good cosmetic result.
